In the "HalloweeN" fan circles some of the best independent Halloween 1 and 2 masks have come from recasts of Don Post Studios Captain Kirk masks, the same type of mask used in the first 2 installments. The vast sea of Myers mask replicas it can make it difficult to tell some of their origins, so with that burden in mind I took it upon myself to create lineage charts for every 1975 Kirk mask that has been recast to produce replica Michael Myers masks as well as each offspring.
First off we have the "Kirkus Kirk", arguably the most well known of the replica-producing original Kirk masks given how many offspring it has. This mask used to be owned by Billy Kirkus, then it ended up in the hands of Bry Hoffman who restored it to Kirk form and sold it on eBay years ago.
Next is the "Medley Kirk". This Kirk produced one of the most infamous masks in the hobby, the HMK. From that initial molding of the Kirk, several other iterations were created and passed along. This mask used to be owned by John Medley who then sold it to a private collector.
Next in line is another very popular line of masks that descend from the "98 Proto Kirk". Although it is not a standard production run 1975 Don Post Studios Kirk mask, it is from the same mold! This mask popped up several years ago when a forum member found it in a shop and bought it out of curiosity. It turned out to be one of several prototype copies of the 1998 Don Post Studios Kirk mask. The forum member sold it to Nikos Dresios of "NAG" and it has been used as the base for a great majority of NAG masks.
The "Jay Allen Kirk" produced this next lineup of masks but sadly his original Kirk is no longer in existence. Jay Allen bought a nice original Kirk mask and sent it to Terry Lambert of CGP to have it foam filled. What he received back was a poorly done recast of what was NOT his original mask. Terry had stolen the original kirk and destroyed it in an attempt to recast it. Years later NAG managed to put the copy to use and make 2 replicas shown below.
The last of the original Kirk masks that have created replicas is the "Sean Clark Kirk". This used to be owned by collector Sean Clark and he used it to create some of the earliest accurate Myers masks replicas that we know of. It has been rumored that rather than using an actual Kirk mask, the foam backing that came with some copies was used instead. This would help to make sense of the masks initially under-detailed nature but with keeping the form correct.
